PGCE SECONDARY PHYSICAL EDUCATION X9C6
This Postgraduate Certificate Education (PGCE) Secondary Physical Education course leads to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), qualifying you to teach the 11-18 age group in secondary schools in England and Wales.
You will be taught by staff with national and international reputations as experts in the field of physical education; these staff are supported by expert practitioners from local schools.
Our excellent teaching facilities, including a sports hall and gymnasium with extensive resources and equipment, will provide the setting for your practical teaching.
The content of the programme is grounded in the evidence-based principles of teaching and learning. You will examine a range of pedagogical approaches to physical education teaching, including workshop-led and informal approaches to learning. Other teaching methods include a series of lectures, practical seminars and workshops, where interactive and discussion-based techniques will encourage you to engage, reflect and challenge. Sessions may include:
participating in workshop-style sessions with your peers
attending presentations by subject experts
working on tasks in groups
having individual tutorials
visits to schools or other education settings
visits to theatres, museums, galleries or sites of educational interest
writing assignments on aspects of subject teaching and professional studies
These learning activities will help you to develop a toolkit of knowledge and skills, ensuring you are well prepared to tackle challenges and opportunities throughout your training and your career.
Alongside your University tutors, you will be taught and guided by a team of committed and experienced University-trained school mentors.
